Where They Won (NY Times)

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

The Times featured this visual confection on their home page momentarily in the final throws of the primary last week. The map shows the 50 states and their 3,000+ counties in a small time series animation with a DNA sequence timeline above with darker bar indicating primary and/or caucus dates. The number of delegates for Obama and Clinton tallies automatically and the time slider can be scrubbed back and forth.
